UFC Power Rankings - MMA Heavyweight Betting

MMA Betting Online

No other weight class carries more intrigue and mystique than the heavyweight division. This is true for any combat sport, and the UFC is no different. This is where titans collide, where every man has the size and power to render an opponent conscious with a single punch. Fittingly, the champion not only holds the belt, but the title of “The Baddest Man on the Planet.”

Every month, check out our UFC rankings and stay up to date with each division. We’ll analyze the latest UFC odds and post betting tips for every upcoming fight and event, just to make sure you come out ahead of the game. Check out our top-rated sportsbooks get the best MMA Odds now.

Let’s take a look at the current division. Remember, you can bet on your favorite fighters at

The heavyweight division might’ve been a bit stale for a few years, but it’s poppin’ off right now. Besides a likeable, dominant champ in Stipe Miocic, we’ve got a fresh batch of hungry young bucks looking to overturn the veteran regime at the top of the rankings. Though we’re still waiting for DC-Miocic to play out, all of a sudden there are some rad matchups to make for the division. Guys like Curtis Blaydes, Tai Tuivasa and Alexander Volkov are rising up the ranks - and they’re all under 30.

Fighters to Watch

We can’t wait for Ngannou vs. Lewis at UFC 226. You know how sometimes when two talented strikers face off, those fighters respect each other so much they end up staring at each other for a few rounds? That’s not happening here. Headhunting is in both Ngannou and Lewis’ DNA, and they just so happen to be the most prolific KO artists in the divsion.

Curtis Blaydes just pounded out No. 2 Alistair Overeem and cemented his role as a title contender. He could definitely be next in line for a shot at the DC-Miocic winner, but don’t be surprised if he gets another fight first. You don’t see many big men with his blend of athleticism, knockout power and high-level wrestling. This kid’s gonna be a factor for a while.

The Greats

Only recently could the UFC make the claim that it had the best heavyweights in the world. For a long time, Pride FC was the standard-bearer - legends like Fedor Emelianenko, Antonio Nogueira, Mirko “Cro Cop” and Josh Barnett spent the primes of Hall of Fame careers fighting in Japan. Strikeforce’s famed Heavyweight Grand Prix in 2011 also had an embarrassment of riches, with Fedor, Fabricio Werdum, Alistair Overem, Barnett and Daniel Cormier all competing.

The problem with trying to select the best UFC heavyweights in history is that most of them all had better days in other organizations. The greats most closely associated with the octagon would be Randy Couture, one of three men to win titles in two weight classes, former heavyweight champion Frank Mir, Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum.

The Future of Heavyweights

One thing is for certain for a division defined by volatility: the heavyweight division will look drastically different in five years. Most of the fighters are closer to the end of their careers than the beginning, and it’s tough to be a 40-year old heavyweight in a combat sport. A new generation of big men should materialize soon, and we’ll be covering it in detail.

Betting on UFC, however, requires almost as much discipline as learning the martial art itself. As you consider UFC betting you will want to do research on the fighters and their styles.

MMA Fighting Rules

Fighters compete in what is known as the octagon, an engineered fence. Once thought to be a gimmick, the octagonal shape gives structural support. The octagon is 30 feet in diameter and stands 5ft 6in. These are the UFC rules, defined, decided and approved by the Nevada State athletic commission.
